  • communicate with you

  • collect payments from you

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

As an Endorsed Midwife, I have a Collaborative Arrangement with Dr. Cathy Love, and in the event that you do not have a referral from, or agree to liaison with your chosen GP, I may request her collaboration in your and your baby's care plan. 

Your care plan may require the involvement of other allied health practitioners - in this instance your consent would be sought before your personal details are shared for collaboration purposes. 

Adelaide Breastfeeding Support will make every attempt to protect the privacy of your personal health information as required by the Code of Ethics of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, and the Standards of Practice of the International Lactation Consultant Association. ​ Adelaide Breastfeeding Support is also bound by the Privacy Act 1988, which sets out a number of principles concerning the privacy of individuals as well as the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs).  This Privacy Policy relates to both use of this website (adelaidebreastfeedingsupport.com.au) and the midwifery and lactation support services provided by Adelaide Breastfeeding Support.

However, data protection and security measures are never completely secure and, despite the measures I have put in place, I cannot guarantee the security of your information.  You must take care to protect your personal information (for example, by protecting any usernames and passwords) and you should notify me as soon as possible of any security breaches.  If you do not wish to pay your appointment fee online, please contact me to arrange for an alternative payment method.
